Top 8 of '08: Geek Chic

Electropop wizards Hot Chip scored big in 2008 with their third release 'Made in the Dark' (Astralwerks /Caroline). Mining their dweeb aplomb to yield a fine new gem, 'Made in the Dark' coalesces Moby with Ben Folds. This expansion beyond Electronica, albeit modest, results in a record that displays more mood swings than a night on the town with Andy Dick. The result: cultivated and resplendent. It also has a good beat, you can dance to it. I'd give it a seven.

I'm just sayin'.

Made in the Dark- Hot Chip
